Community Events 2015-2016
We have 2 events for February: Wendy's Night (2/3) and Buffalo Wild Wings (2/17). BASED ON THE RESULTS OF OUR FIRST CAFE ZUPAS NIGHT, WE CANCELED OUR FEBRUARY CAFE ZUPAS NIGHT.
Wendy's doesn't need a flyer but you MUST mention Bailey for us to receive credit. Here is the BWW flyer that is needed for the February events:

Bailey Bytes for Technology
1. Eat at participating restaurants on fundraising nights: mention that you are from Bailey Elementary (and/or show the corresponding coupon that is required from some of the restaurants - see above for all the specifics)
2. Write your child's name and grade on your receipt and bring it to the Media Center for a chance to win recess in the Media Center. There will be a drawing on WRB News at the end of every month.
We have teamed up with area restaurants to raise monies for new technology at the school. The dates and places will be shared on Bailey webpage, Facebook, and Twitter sites as well as the PTA Community Events website.
Bailey Elementary School is growing by leaps and bounds. Our technology use is increasing with this growth. We currently have 2 computer labs, 64 chromebooks and 48 iPad minis that classroom teachers can checkout for their students to use. We now have 1.5 media specialists who also use technology to meet their curriculum. That gives us 176 pieces of technology for over 800 students and 36 teachers to attempt to share.
“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” – David Warlick
